She attended Thomson Street Primary School and Onslow Drive Junior School. She started her career at an early age. She became known especially in the late 60s when she appeared in both films and several television series. She also represented the United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song Contest. In 1974 she performed the title song for the James Bond film "The Man with the Golden Gun". 
In 1981 she released an album on Alfa Records from Los Angeles.

Backing vocals by Carol Kenyon, Tony Rivers and Ronnie Carrol.

String and horn arrangements by Lynton Naiff and Mike Moran. Produced by Mark London. I have chosen three tracks entitled "If I were you" , "You win, I lose" and "I could never miss you".

I want to mention that the song "Who's foolin who" was nominated for Grammy Award. "Who's foolin who" was released as a single with "You win, I lose" as the B-side and peaked at #106 on Billboard.
